I am planning to use mod_rewrite to hide ugly urls. e.g.
would point to http://.../index.php?pid=43
I have got this to work. My question is how will the GoogleBot know to index the mod_rewrite urls (i.e. http://.../places/coffee-house
) since technically they dont exist.
More detail - I plan to add unique meta tags (keywords, description) to the page depending on the pid passed to index.php. So each such mod_rewritten url has unique content. How can I get Googlebot to discover such Urls? Should I create empty directories mirroring the url path (e.g. mkdir www/places/coffee-house)?
